Major GPA Lower Than Cumulative?
I haven't posted a question since I was a senior in high school applying for colleges, but now I'm kinda freaking out. I'm a Sophomore in college right now. My Freshman year went great but my sophomore year is tougher because of a lot of factors outside of my control. It's also when I started taking more classes in my major. This semester especially has been the hardest few months of my life (not because of class difficulty, because of life stuff that I don't really want to get into) and it means that my major GPA is about a 3.6, while my overall GPA is almost a 3.8. I hope to bring it up in the next two years, but if I can't, does this put good grad schools completely out of reach for me?
Thanks for any help, grad school in my field was always my plan and I feel kind of stuck thinking that it might not be attainable anymore.
